in strong support today of the balanced budget put forward by my friend and chairman paul ryan. and the reasonable and practical approach that this budget committee has taken while they budget hardworking taxpayer dollars. mr. speaker, this budget debate goes deeper than spread sheets and focuses on the longevity of the american dream. today we are considering a republican budget that actually balances in 10 years. calls for pro growth, pro job tax reform -- pro-growth, pro-job tax reform and strengthens medicare for our seniors and future generations. while in the senate harry reid and patty murray are considering a budget that never balances. it increases taxes by $1 trillion and let's medicare and social security race towards bankruptcy. and it turns medicare into a program that rations benefits to seniors. make no mistake, washington is approaching $17 trillion of debt and more than 12 million americans are unable to find work. the decisions we make will either sink us deeper into debt or put us on a path that encourages job creation and restores the belief that if we work

this was the centerpiece of their campaign for the last six months. this was part of what our friend, paul ryan and governor romney, preached from coast to coast, advertised, campaigned, and all of a sudden it was rejected by the american public overwhelmingly. the president was comfortably re-elected and more democratic senators added who support this effort in the house of representatives, not only did we gain seats, but more than a million voters more voted for democrats than republicans. so you would think that this would be put to rest, but it is important for people to know that it is still a viable option as far as our republican friends are concerned. and it's unfortunate, because we are making some progress in reforming the health care system, not by turning our back on medicare, not by transferring the risk and responsibility to seniors and most vulnerable, but by making it more efficient, by taking some of the experiments that we have done in my home state of oregon, and as you well know, there are some health care systems in california that have already found ways to reward value ov

: without objection. r. lujan: mr. speaker, the house republican budget unveiled yesterday by chairman paul ryan is the repeat of the same tea party principles that have already been rejected by the american people. house republicans are once again determined to place the burden of deficit reduction on the backs of middle-class families while the wealthiest americans get yet another tax break. after wasting valuable time last congress, voting more than 30 times to repeal health care reform rather than focus on jobs and the economy, the republican budget again calls for its repeal. in addition, their budget ends medicare as we know it, and surprise, surprise, turning it into a voucher program that reduces benefits and leaves seniors paying higher out-of-pocket costs. while this budget blueprint is still lacking in specific details, it is clear that in order to meet the spending targets it outlines, house republicans will slash investments in key areas that are essential to economic growth and job creation, education, job training, science and research will all be on the chopping block in ord
